Manage episode 221589875 series 2437761
Have you reached that point in your job where you’re thinking ‘enough is enough’? Are you ready to sack your boss and start a business you love?
On today’s show we’re switching things up and I will be in the hot seat for a change talking about my brand new book ‘Sack Your Boss: The Ultimate Guide To Escape Your 9-5’.
I’m joined by my good friend and fellow Author, Lex McKee. Lex will be posing the questions to find out the story behind the writing of the book, what it’s all about and who I’ve written it for.
The book is currently available for Pre-Order Worldwide for a special discounted offer of just £0.99 - Pre-Order 'Sack Your Boss' Book
In this episode you’ll learn…
What each of the 5 Steps are within The Five Step Freedom Formula and why they have a specific order
Why I chose not to go to University and the steps I took to land my dream job working for one of the World’s most successful record companies at the age of 19
Why you need a structure to support you during your transition from employee to starting your own business
Why it’s absolutely essential to understand yourself first before you begin to search for your ‘winning strategy’
Why Fear is so often the number one thing that holds people back from taking the leap of faith to quit their 9-5 and what you can do to overcome that
How to plan your escape by breaking down your big goals into 90 day sprints
The importance of finding your own entrepreneurial team as early on in your journey as possible
How to find your natural flow as an entrepreneur
The ripple effect that every single sale of ‘Sack Your Boss’ book will have as part of the Escape The Rat Race partnership with B1G1
‘It’s easier just to keep on doing it [a job you don’t enjoy] than to actually take that leap of faith and really, really step outside of your comfort zone’
‘All of the strategies work. What people need to understand is that not every strategy will work for every person’
‘Getting up, doing that daily commute, sitting at your desk, looking at the clock all day long and just waiting for Friday to come. That is not a way to spend your life’
‘When you take that leap of faith and ‘feel the fear and just do it anyway’ the world has a funny way of things just falling into place’
‘When I ask people ‘what does escape the rat race mean to you?’, 99 times out of 100 the answer I get back is ‘freedom’’
‘When you understand all that chit-chat [in your head] is false, it’s stuff either in the past or in the future but not actually the reality of right now - then you can put that into perspective’
‘When you know what your entrepreneur profile is it’s unbelievable how it gives you that clarity and focus’
